Maps and Directions
Flying to Chicago:
Chicago has two airports, Midway and O'Hare. Midway Airport is located closer to the University of Chicago and is more convenient to fly into. From either airport, the fastest way to get to downtown or the university is by taxi. If you are traveling directly to the symposium from the airport, the Omega Shuttle Service is an alternative option.
Getting to Campus:
From Downtown/North Side of Chicago: Take South Lake Shore Drive and exit at 57th Drive (the Museum of Science and Industry). Continue west and curve around the Museum of Science and Industry on South Cornell Drive. Take the fourth right onto the Midway Plaisance and go west to the campus. Turn left (north) onto Ellis Ave. Parking is available in Ellis Avenue Garage and limited street parking in the neighborhood may also be available.
